Coming October 28, 2017. Coffins, ghosts, and a race?! Yes, it’s the Emma Crawford Coffin Races and Parade in Manitou Springs, Colorado! Drawing on the legend of Emma Crawford, a young woman who tragically died just before she was to be married and whose ghost haunts Red Mountain where she was buried, this wacky race celebrates her with teams of 4 “pallbearers” pushing a coffin holding an “Emma” through the historic downtown streets. This family friendly event includes a parade and awards for the best Emma, the most creative coffin, and the best overall entourage.
